My love for old

April 13, 2015



  I do love everything old... old people, old houses, old books, old music...

It's the heritage ... the history behind everything old ... there is always a story to tell or imagine.

When I read an old book I imagine the writer in his or her time and with this another story emerges :)


My love and admiration for antique quilling is very profound and I have always wanted to create something inspired by it, but never quite found the right canvas...


But then I found an old book that was just about to be thrown away and I decided it was time to try.

So I carved the book into a box and then I stared at antique quillings for days before I switched off all technology and started on my own design.


You will find elements of antique quilling in this piece but it is entirely my own creation.

I hope you enjoy it.

I would like to think that in time someone will hold this jewelry box and think back and try to imagine me in my times :)
